A. crenata – after Jung, 1942

Apodera crenata  Jung, 1942

Diagnosis: Test retort-shaped, in cross-section circular, almost colorless, yellowish, with a net-like structure and a curved neck. The constriction between neck and main body is thin. Pseudostome irregularly lobed with thickened edge.

Dimensions: Jung (1942): length 93 μm, width 39 μm, aperture 20 μm, neck 23 μm  (n=1). My measurements: length 113-126 μm, width 44-48 μm, aperture 14-20 μm, neck 33-36 μm  (n=3)

Ecology: Sphagnum, Calbuco Island, Chili (Jung, 1942). I found it in litter, collected at 3000 m. in Ecuador (collected by Valentyna Krashevska, 2020).
